Today is my birthday and I am busy being glamorous and day-dreaming about all of the books I should treat myself to.
Filed under GLBTQ, Personal, Queer Library
My suggestions are:
THE ISLAND HOUSE by Posie Graeme-Evans
THE ROOTS OF THE OLIVE TREE by Courtney Miller Santo
THE HOUSE OF SERENADES by Lina Simoni
OWNING TREASURE by Joe & Laura Wilbur
They are all reviewed on my blog if you want to see what they are about.
Hope you have a great birthday!!
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Happy birthday! I hope you have a great one.
Just go to your local bookshop and look around, pick up a book and another one, etc. Ask the girl behind the counter to carry the first pile for you, place the second pile next to it, near the cash register, browse some more shelves.
Haha, I love this idea! Thank you!
Happy Birthday, Cass! And happy book browsing.
I… I really got nothin’ that you don’t already know about. I’m currently reading Affinity and loving it, but you’re acquainted with Sarah Waters. How about anything about the life of Wallace Thurman, bisexual Harlem Renaissance figure who died tragically young? I just read his The Blacker the Berry for class and his life story is pretty interesting.
Color me surprised–I haaated Affinity. I think I threw it across the room, even. Wallace Thurman is new to me for sure, I’ll look into that. Thanks!
Happy birthday! I have no idea what to rec. Jack 1939?
No recommendations, other than to buy them all!
Thank you! I think buying them all is a reasonable response to one’s birthday.
Happy Birthday! I’m reading The Picture of Dorian Gray for the fifth time right now, so that’s my recommendation….
I should probably actually finish reading that one, thanks.
Happy birthday! I think Judith’s on to a good idea, just go with the flow and buy what happens to interest you.
All of the books!
Happy birthday (a few days late)! I ditto softdrink’s comment above–just buy All The Books.
Thank you! I definitely WANT all the books. Nom nom.
Happy (quite belated) birthday! Hope you stocked up on lots of great reads.
Happy (belated) birthday. I’m a bit behind in everything (including blogging) so I’m late to give you birthday wishes. Hope you got some good suggestions and good reads. I always ask for gift certificates to book stores on my birthday so I can get all the reads I’ve been coveting. The library doesn’t always work for me because then I have to read on a schedule. I like having the books there waiting for me! : )
Thanks, Jenners! I rely on the library for my LGBTQ book needs–I’m generally not going to buy a YA book unless I love it or the author, and queer theory books get super expensive. Luckily I live in a city with a great library system (and not so many people on the holds list…) so I can spend my money on, uh, shoes. And bags. I bought myself three purses on my birthday because I am a crazy person.
